• List all MSG additives on labels
    MSG is a additive found in many processed foods. A large percentage of the population is allergic or sensitive to it. It aggitates numerous health conditions. Some reactions are severe. The companies who manufacturer MSG have created mulitple names for it. Leaving many unaware consumers ingesting it even though they shouldn't. "In 1993, FDA proposed adding the phrase '(contains glutamate)' to the common or usual names of certain protein hydrolysates that contain substantial amounts of glutamate. For example, if the proposal were adopted, hydrolyzed soy protein would have to be declared on food labels as 'hydrolyzed soy protein (contains glutamate).'" ... Unfortunately, for those with asthma, migraine, and atrial fibrillation, MSG as free glutamate remains a hidden food ingredient. This FDA labeling proposal was killed by a powerful food lobby. Please help me get this changed!

  • End Hiring Discrimation Against Long-Term Unemployed
    Recent news reports on MSNBC say that the long-term unemployed face a new hurdle that is legal - discrimination by hiring employers against people who, because of the recession, have been and continue to be unemployed through no fault of their own. We all need jobs to survive and thrive in the U.S. Let's outlaw this hurdle that the long-term unemployed desperately need to have removed so we can all get back to work.

  • Compromise and Solve Our Problems
    I would like to see both the Republicans and Democrats come together to support reasonable compromises on both sides to resolve our debt crisis. Specifically, I would like to see the Republicans consider revisions to the tax system so the wealthy and corporations pay a fair share, and I would like to see the Democrats look at reasonable entitlement revision such as means-testing. I think the bipartisan Debt Reduction Commission is a good starting point.

  • Proposed 28th Amendment
    We do not have an elite that is above the law. American law should apply equally to all of it's citizens!!! For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform.... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical.

  • Non Profit only for Health Insurance
    The conversion of non-profit health insurance companies to for-profit insurers has required there be profits payable to shareholders. The equation should only include providers, health care costs and patients. Require health insurers to be non profit companies and replace the interest of shareholders with the interests of stakeholders: patients and their providers.

  • Campaign Finance Reform
    Campaign finance reform would ensure that money will not "buy" an election. All candidates would operate from an equal playing field, with no one "owing" favors to any special interest group or corporation.

  • Rein in the TSA
    It's time to end the overly invasive violations of our freedoms imposed on us by the TSA. The scanners and invasive pat downs are not making us any safer, their effectiveness has not been illustrated at all. Our right to travel has now become a 'privilege' granted by the government. This loss of dignity imposed on us has severely damaged our moral character. We need to tell our elected representatives to stand up to this abuse and make it stop.

  • Tell Apple To Let Credo Have The iPhone
    I love my iPhone, but hate giving over $1000 a year to AT&T or Verizon -- both of which donate to right-wing candidates and lobby against issues important to me. Now that Apple no longer has an exclusive deal with AT&T in the U.S., it's time for them to extend a partnership deal to the only progressive phone company.
